Congratulations and syabas (brovo) to Royal Malaysian Navy commandos!
Malaysian naval commandos have rescued 23 crew and captured seven Somali pirates following a firefight to free a hijacked oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden.
The commandos were called in after the Malaysian tanker MT Bunga Laurel, sent out a distress call late Thursday after pirates armed with AK-47 assault rifles boarded and took control of the ship.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib praised the swift action by the navy.
